Need a little more keyboard help

Recommended Posts

Champak

I found this as part of another script and hacked around it to get the basic function that I need. However I need it to do a little more but can't figure how to get it the rest of the way, so hopefully I can get some help. This is an onscreen keyboard.

I need:

1/ I need it not to be set up on the "GUIOnEventMode 1". I tried setting this up on the default loop mode, but nothing I did would work. This has to integrate with another script I have that must be in continuous loop.

2/ It isn't sending what I have in the input, it keeps sending "40". (This is really weird to me)

3/ I made a weak workaround where this script will hide the keyboard for a split second and send the input to the previous window and then the keyboard will pop back up/reactivate. I would prefer it not have to HIDE=>SEND=>SHOW, because I feel that something like that will fail down the line in certain situations.

4/ I would prefer that it sends the info to whatever app immediately, instead of having to press the enter button after I type everything to send the info.

5/ Although the main purpose of this is for a touch screen, I would like to have the option to use a standard keyboard. This thing is blocking keyboard input.

Thanks for any help
